    A Comparative Note on the Bangla Particle "to" and the German Particle "doch"
    (2018-01-01) Bayer, Josef
    The Bangla discourse particle –to and the German discourse particle doch share a number of syntactic and semantic properties. Their phonetic similarity suggests a remote historical relation. While the latter part will only be mentioned and must remain for the specialists in Indo-European reconstruction, the present short study will highlight points of convergence between the two languages with respect to these particles along a series of concrete tests. The convergence appears to be more than accidental.
